The uprising in Eastern Ukraine get sympathies from the Maidan management. Maidan uprising was betrayed by the coup junta and the Maidan Patriots are now talking about Maidan II.
This is clear from the travel report of the Finnish lawyer Jon Hellevig and journalist Janus Putkonen, who just returned from a three day trip to Kiev, where they met the real Maidan leaders of the fortress Maidan.
Maidan people resist the current western-backed coup junta and the only current politician which is somewhat approved is “chocolate Emperor” Poroshenko. The uprising in Eastern Ukraine get sympathies from Maidan management, who are nevertheless concerned about the country’s unity, writes Janus Putkonen in a lengthy report published on the network side VERKKOMEDIA and reproduced here in edited form by Peter Iiskola.
Then right-wing extremists and coup junta extreme supporters were thrown out of the Maidan fortress. When this happened, also three other things happened almost at the same time:
1. Financing of Maidan ended
2. The media in Ukraine began to distort the truth about the Maidan and Western media stopped writing about the Maidan
3. The coup junta and right-wing extremists want to shred or destroy Maidan fortress.
Jon Hellevig and Janus Putkonen met in Kiev in a secret meeting the leaders of the original people’s movement on the Maidan. Reality is more incredible than fiction. Kiev center-fortress is no longer controlled by the nationalists, but of moderate patriots.
Hellevig and Putkonen met on April 30th two leaders from Maidan folk movement’s Board of Directors, or the defense forces chief “Vladimir” and board member, “Mr. R”. For security reasons, will not be published faces or real names of these two.
SNIPERS TRIED AGAIN TO SHOOT MAIDAN LEADERS
The night before the meeting, there was a battle between the right-wing extremist SNA and Maidan defense troops. There were a few snipers who failed to shoot dead Maidan leaders. Maidan defenders managed to counter the militant parade, which probably tried to burn Maidan with its 100 military tents within the barricades.
Why in the world was someone trying to kill Maidan leaders? Why did right-wing militants, hooligans and provocateurs want to burn the Ukrainian revolt headquarters in Kiev center?
Western media are silent about the 1000 original activists at Maidan fortress, not controlled from outside. The fortress is opposed to the current Kiev junta and all that threatens Ukraine’s independence, but they do not hate Russians.
There are obvious sympathies for the separatists in Eastern Ukraine. Maidan has changed after the Right Sector was split and the Kiev junta has tried to reorganize the right wing extremists to the new National Guard.
Maidan still have a Right Sector office, but Dmitry Yarosh has no longer influence on the Maidan management or Maidan defense troops, which renounced extremists and Nazi symbols. Right extremists or junta’s provocations and attempted bribery are daily.
Vladimir says that every man lost to the National Guard is a loss. Against the defending troops are fighting mercenaries, which also consists of extremist militants and including “Ultra ” hooligans who are football fans.
Vladimir says that the National Guard has poor management and technical level. On Monday, a National Guard a unit of 150 men was sent to Donetsk, but they got a hard thrashing of Eastern Ukraine separatists. The extreme National Guard currently has 7000 to 10,000 members, says Vladimir.
KIEV JUNTA OPPOSED BOTH ON MAIDAN AND IN EASTERN UKRAINE
Mr. R says that no one is financing the Maidan anymore, except ordinary citizens. Until the end of March, there was outside support to Maidan, but now the extremists and junta want to tear down the Maidan, which has become a threat to the coup junta.
Mr. R says that several Maidan leaders have been offered several hundred thousand dollars to jumpo over to the other side or to leave. For each tent taken down thughs have offered tens of thousands of dollars.
The new Maidan criticize the West. Maidan also does not take any orders from the West. However, these patriots say that in cases of extreme emergency, the choice is EU, if they actually have to choose either-or between the EU and Russia. The U.S. has also no support on the Maidan. Police officers or other officials have not power on Maidan and we could not at all see police officers there.
The Kiev junta has thus a powerful force against in front of his very nose on the Maidan in Kiev city center, and not just the Separatist resistance far away in Donetsk, Loans and Odessa. It also explains why Maidan activists still are in the fortress on the square and have not moved to Eastern Ukraine in armored columns, as some right-wing extremists.
The Patriots have not yet completed their revolt. It is unfinished. They are already talking about Maidan 2 to be preening administration and remove protection from prosecution parliamentarians. No wonder why the Kiev junta and the West now are both very scared and worried about this Maidan fortress.
UKRAINE’S REVOLUTION WAS DECEIVED
The Maidan management believes that the February revolution was let down by the coup junta. Thus, the revolt is in progress and is not complete. These patriots have even sympathy for demonstrators in Eastern Ukraine and Donbas self-defense.
These patriots are suspicious of the Kremlin’s plans to take the Eastern Ukraine, but they have not called the self-defense groups in Donetsk to either terrorists or traitors, but instad shown sumpathy and understanding. However, these patriots are worried about the country’s unity.
Maidan leaders say that the revolution was deceived the very first day by the coup junta with a deliberate mistake to proclaim a Language Act, which changed the position of the Russian language and started demonstrations in eastern Ukraine.
Maidan leaders say the unrest in Eastern Ukraine is not organized from Russia. They do not speak hateful about Russia or Russians, but suspect Moscow’s strategic objectives. Putin is not popular on the Maidan, but otherwise, the patriots have a neutral attitude toward the Russians.
DIPLOMATIC CONTACTS WITH THE CRIMEA – DO NOT TEAR MAIDAN DOWN!
Maidan leaders hope that diplomatic contacts are immediately opened to the Crimean peninsula. The Crimea does not create any strong emotional reactions in Maidan leaders. It seems that the leaders could approve the regional governments in Donetsk and Loans, but now ought Odessa also be calmed down with negotiations to avoid causing “a real dead end “ for Ukraine’s future.
Right extremists had in February power on the Maidan, but not anymore. It is a thing of the past – many extremists are packed in tanks to East. The patriots who are left on the Maidan fortress have thrown out the extremist nationalists and the present government mercenaries.
Maidan in Kiev is not an asset to the current Kiev junta, but a counterforce. The leaders say that Ukraine’s media “prostitute“ the truth, while the press in the West, of course, is dead silnet about the uncomfortable truth.
West supports the extremist forces that induce a collision with Russia, while the Maidan has been transferred to the moderate patriots, who have now lost dollars support. Maidan is a fortress of resistance, which has been defrauded. Their funding has been cut, and now the Western-backed coup junta and the rightists want to demolish or destroy Maidan.
